Miko - 7 and a half weeks old, and FEMALE. Oops!

Yes I camera-stalk the little tot. I'm soooo happy to finally have hand-rearing success! Miko is healthy, active, and out of the danger zone of the first few weeks. She knows how to eat and drink on her own. My work is done :)

Miko likes to sit on feet :) No, that is not my leg. I am not an insanely hairy chick.

Miko and Tamago finally share a bed.

The cutest little thing! Hand-reared SUCCESS!! WOOHOO!!! WHO ROCKS?? I SO FREAKING DO!! YESSSSSS!!!!!!! *fist pumps in the air*

Wow, what an amazing job you have done! I was not successfull at the hand-rearing and lost a litter of 5 a few years ago and I have never been able to do it since. This is a HUGE job and I congratulate you for being so awesome. What a gorgeous little kitty, beautiful markings.


I am a new "poster", I have been reading your blog for a long time though and love your work. (I am in Canada)

Awww... Thank you Sarah! I think I was successful because I only had one kitten to hand-rear so I could put all my energy into raising her. I can't imagine hand-rearing a litter of 5!! I've lost 9 out of 13 I attempted to hand-rear :(
